Today, we saw the Neuschwanstein castle in Fussen, Germany. It was amazing! We took a train to Munchen, then to Fussen to get there. It was our luck of course that we made it there with 40 minutes until the last English tour. The guy told us it was a 40 minute hike, so we took off in hopes to make it up in time. I did not really believe him when he said it was a difficult hike...he was right!! We bought our tickets and then started hiking up the mountain to get to the castle. It was out luck that the buses were closed for the day. We had our huge backpacks and hiked up, it was the hardest hike of my life!!! We were so out of breath. We did not make it for the English tour but we got the next best thing....the German tour!! It was a fun experiance and we really got to know each other well on this trip! Even though we got to the castle late, it was great becasue we got to see the sunset. We then headed back to Munich to spend the night! It was a long day, but i loved every second. Allie and Phong are so much fun to travel with and such great friends!
